NET © Notes

sn The way of a fool describes a headlong course of actions (“way” is an idiom for conduct) that is not abandoned even when wise advice is offered.

sn The fool believes that his own plans and ideas are perfect or “right” (יָשָׁר, yashar); he is satisfied with his own opinion.

tn Heb “in his own eyes.”

tn Or “a wise person listens to advice” (cf. NIV, NRSV, TEV, CEV, NLT).
